Uninterested and disinterested

Do you know the difference between uninterested and disinterested? Laura does:


I like Adam @ Home because the strip reminds me of me. I’ve been a work-at-home writer for years, off and on, and I have a pretty good wife, who is also cute, though not blonde.

Uninterested: don’t care about it. Blasé.

Disinterested: don’t have a stake in the outcome. Impartial. A judge is supposed to be disinterested in the outcome of a trial.
